Weber Q1000 Liquid Propane Grill Review

Weber is probably the most well-known American grill maker. They’ve been around for quite a long time, but they haven’t run out of steam yet. Weber keeps innovating and coming up with updates to their existing product line.

One of the latest grills from Weber is the Q1000. Compared to the retro styled classic grills, the Q1000 looks futuristic. Its powerful 8500 BTU grill is fueled by propane gas. The Q1000 is compatible with two sizes of gas canisters: 14.1 oz and 16.4 oz.

Let’s take a look at this grill’s main features to see what it brings to the table.

Features:

Easy to carry — This grill’s ergonomic handles, low weight (26.6 pounds) and small form factor (20.5 x 27 x 23.5 inches) make it ideal for traveling.

Ultimate control — The infinite control burner valve allows you to sear your meat with a precise amount of heat.

Instant ignition — No more fiddling around with coals. To start this grill, all you have to do is press a button.

Converts into a griddle — If you buy the add on griddle accessory from Weber, you can switch out the grill and start making pancakes.

High quality materials — The body is solid stainless steel, but the cast-iron grill is covered with a coat of easy-to-clean porcelain.

Our Ratings: 4.8/5


The Good

This really is a nifty piece of cooking equipment and a substantial improvement of the previous model, the Q100. It heats up quickly, cooks evenly and is a great all-around propane grill.

The Bad

Not so great on cold, windy days. Large openings in the sides of the grill allow cold air to get in. Also: this grill lacks a built-in thermometer.

Best Suited For

Apartment dwellers, campers and anyone else in the market for a portable propane grill.

Not So Good For

Ice fishermen. Due to design issues, this grill doesn’t work as well when it’s cold outside.

The Verdict

Overall, this is a very nice propane grill with very few flaws. The Weber brand name has a great reputation and this propane grill is a very high quality cooking device. The only way this grill could be improved is by adding adjustable vents. The existing vents are great, but only as long as you use the grill when the weather is warm.
